Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Jonathan Barcan

San Francisco, CA, USA
For the past 12 years I have immersed myself in the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area creative scene, where I have both participated in and curated arts/music events in a variety of locations. I earned a BFA from San Francisco State University in 2007 and recently in 2011, my MFA from SUNY Buffalo. As a dedicated Painter/Printmaker/Installation Artist I have exhibited internationally, including shows in Oakland, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Beijing, Montreal, Toronto, and Florence, Italy.
